I worked with my friend’s company on and off for a number of years. His business is based in the United Kingdom and their speciality is Robotic Process Automation (RPA) within the travel industry.
RPA allows a company to save money by removing repetitive tasks from staff and putting those tasks in the hands of software robots. In essence the concept is simple but the depth and breadth that automation can be taken to is staggering. RPA companies are bringing machine learning and A.I. into solutions to provide sophisticated ways to solve problems within a business.
When COVID-19 hit, the travel industry became chaotic. With the slowdown in client work, Traverse Associates formed another company to broaden its offering. Cognitive Flow is the sister company offering over ten years of RPA experience to different industries. Traverse is still going strong!
I worked on several projects with Traverse that included competitive analysis, price matching, data warehousing, Extract Transform and Load (ETL) and business intelligence for clients.
- Python, Django and related tools.
- Apache Airflow, RabbitMQ, Celery, Jasper Reports.
- MySQL, SQL Server, C#/.NET.
